Nissan left the automotive media scratching its collective head when it announced that its Infiniti luxury brand would be renaming all of its vehicles, with cars wearing the Q designation and CUVs/SUVs wearing the QX badge. So the G Sedan became the Q50, and the G Coupe became the Q60. The QX56, meanwhile, became the QX80, and the FX crossover became the QX70. It is still thoroughly confusing nearly a year later.

Nissan is adding yet another tier to the GT-R hierarchy for 2014 with the GT-R Track Edition. Debuting at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, the bruiser ditches its back seat in the quest for a lower curb weight, and a set of more seriously bolstered front buckets keep occupants planted once the going gets twisty. The Nürburgring-developed Track Edition offers an integrated carbon fiber front splitter with brake cooling ducts as well as an even harder-core suspension. Engineers swapped the stock b

A Wisconsin Department of Transportation investigator spotted both a 1995 and a 1996 Skyline up for sale and pretended to be a buyer.

If you happen to notice a drop-dead sexy motorcycle stalking the streets of San Francisco in stealth mode, it's quite likely to be the Mission R from Mission Motors. Yes, the very same all-electric machine that won last year's joint TTXGP - FIM ePower race at Laguna Seca might now be spied on its way to the neighborhood bakery or, as was the case recently, the local Dainese D-Store. Although there a number of race facilities in the area, it's a lot less logistically cumbersome to collect data by
